Hat wearing, Champagne drinking and gripping horse races, the Cheltenham Festival has become one of the most prestigious events in any socialite’s calendar. Whether joining the festivities for Champions Day, Ladies Day or the whole week, the festival is set to be a joy for all who attend, and after all, what’s a day at the races without a luxury homestay for the whole gang to congregate in after the sun has set?


Taking interior inspiration from Aynehoe Park but with its soul firmly based in the Mediterranean, Evania is a calming oasis of luxe tranquility just a short drive from the Cheltenham Festival. Inside, the perfect combination of modern design and classic architecture combine with glass walkways, velvet Chesterfield sofas and ostrich feather lamps making a truly unique retreat.

The Hop Store

Starting life as a grain store and now one of the last remaining hop farms in the whole of the country, The Hop Store is the perfect rural retreat after a raucous day at the Cheltenham Festival. Settled within 200 acres of perfectly aligned hop yards, rolling English meadows and juicy apple orchards, this escape for four offers a quiet home in which to dress to the nines before leaving for the day, and squishy pillows to allow sweet slumber at the end of it all.


Traditional Cotswold charm meets contemporary design at Zamani. Filled with inspiration from the owners’ travels around the world, this golden stone home has touches of Africa and India woven through its foundations. A striking juxtaposition of elements, this modern abode framed by rolling green hills, roses and Virginia Creeper offers a private escape to retire to after a day of cheering and cheersing.

The Find

A contemporary dwelling on the outskirts of Cheltenham, The Find is an award-winning home where modernity and tradition unashamedly flirt. Serene yet striking, this Cotswold hideaway sits within 16 acres of quiet woodland and is seemingly as far as can be from the connected world. Forget about your winnings on The Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup, your stay at The Find will be the talking point of the year.
